Wild Cat in the Hat Swirl Bread

February 14, 2012

This wild Cat in the Hat bread from Cake Student is a fun baking project.  White and red bread dough are layered and then wrapped in cocoa flavored bread dough to create the swirl effect.  Nothing is better than fresh bread baking.  Once your family members see the bread straight from the oven, it will be difficult to keep them from devouring it in one sitting.  Dr. Seuss bread art is not a bad way to spend your free time.



3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 TBSP sugar
1 cup milk w/ 1 egg yolk (total or 1 cup together)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 TBSP unsalted butter, softened
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 packet)
red food coloring
4 tsp cocoa powder mixed in 2 tsp hot water
